Weight part two!

I went to slimming world just to weight in today - as not well - again!  I lost a pound so off in the right direction!!

I went to asthma clinic today and got diagnosed with a chest infection, I cried at work because I felt I had to go in as they do not like people taking time off sick.  I might have to have a day or two off but I have had two days off this year already with a tummy bug!

Welcome to  my new follower Eva - I am able to see that she started following me today!!
Before I go 17 years ago today my eldest son passed away aged 11 days old and I just wanted to mention it as I still miss him x

Weight issues

Some of you may know that once upon a time I lost two and half stone - only really one dress size grrr as I am 6ft.  Well I put over a stone and a half on then last August got back to it lost half a stone but now, I am only 12lb under the original weight that I lost a couple of years ago. I am heavier than last August.

It is all my fault.

The reasons (excuses are) :

New office is on an industrial estate no nice park to walk around as before
Too cold to walk at night
Nice colleagues buy cakes and they sit outside my room all day.
OH and I are always seeking out bargains at the Supermarket - cakes and pies
When we go around town for a walk we end up eating coffee and muffins
Work Stress
Home stress

I need some motivation as I am getting fat grrrr please help me!  I need to save money on food without buying the expensive food wish reduced items were healthier.

I notice I have one or two more followers - hi there and welcome.  My blog no longer informs me when new followers have joined so apologies for not welcoming you sooner.

Free days out!

Today OH and I wanted to go out - for a walk but it was too cold for us.  So I googled free days out in my area and what did I get - amongst others:

sculpture & cottages

Okay so we got round it in 30 minutes, and then we went into the closest town of Dorchester for coffee although we did take our own packed lunch to eat when we got to the musuem.

So what free days out do you have in your area.  You should definately use google to check beforehand!
